They wouldn't be the odd man out as Rutgers would apparently follow them.

This makes sense to me. Adds the eastern market more for the B1G. Allows them to add another conference game. Larger TV markets and more money.

I think it may cause a change to the division names as well potentially.

Perhaps do an east and west?

East:
Maryland
Rutgers
OSU
UM
PSU
IU
MSU

West:
Illinois
PU
UN
Iowa
Minny
NU
Wisky

You preserve most of the rivalries and get a true geographic split with divisions. Pretty even too I'd say.
